A mistake was made in my dessert which I was quite happy in the way it was corrected. They fixed their mistake and then took the cost of the dessert off the bill. Amazing service.

I like to dine there from time to time with my girl friend who lives nearby. We always enjoy the good food there. The view is nice as it is very close to the water.

We had the seasonal tapas - a bit half half about this. The servings were incredibly small for the price but the watermelon/tomato soup and honey pear goats cheese was quite good, but the salmon and scallop chorizo was a let down. Diasappointingly, the floor manager plonked this infront of us and he didn't bother explaining what was infront of us. One of the waitress did swing by and checked up on us - so at least the service wasn't too bad. The mains were very nice though - eye fillet was slightly too raw to be considered medium rare but still ok, and my partner loved the middle eastern lamb. I finished off with a hot chocolate - too watery for my liking.

Liked the organic choices. Nice bread. Could have done with Choc croissants.

Restaurant was fully booked so we were in the Alfred Room. A little music would have added to the atmosphere, waiting staff a little clumsy, knocking over things on our table.

St Kildare festival was on so to maximise their income from that, they turned the restaurant floor into a bar and they moved the dining tables into an underground events room with no windows or ambiance. It was a special occasion and at booking they said they would do something special, that never happened... Very disappointing.

Throroughly enjoyed my meal, the best steak in Melbourne. Keep up the good work. Value of meal rated down due to vegies as a side dish, not included in meal price. The quantity supplied too large for single diner, but sufficient for two or more to share as a group. It would be good if side dishes could be offered at choice of size entre size for single diners and regular size for sharing diners, as the restaurant does appear to attract significant numbers of single diners, as too expensive as and a waste of yummy vegetables a single diner.
